Product Description
This worksheet accompanies Cosmos A Spacetime Odyssey Episode 4: A Sky Full of Ghosts. Scroll down to read this episode's synopsis.

Cosmos A Spacetime Odyssey is an incredible educational short scientific documentary narrated by the amazing Neil Degrasse Tyson. You can find the show on various media platforms. It is perfect for an introduction to a topic, a great sub-plan, or a shake-things-up segue while you are moving between subtopics within a standard.

This 30-question 2-page EDITABLE word document and pdf include 24 short answer questions and 6 summarizing questions that you could do after the film or assign as homework. The questions are formatted short-answer style, however no answer is much longer than 1-3 words. The questions are spaced out so that they do not go too fast or too slow and encompass the entire film from start to finish.

Topics:
- Light Years
- Speed of Light
- Gravity
- Supernovae
- Galaxies
- Stars
- Big Bang
- Black Holes
- Electromagnetic Waves
- William Herschel
- Isaac Newton
- James Clerk Maxwell

I made this and am continuing to make more of these types of worksheets because the answers for most of existing worksheets for the Cosmos are online and I really detest when students just look up the answers instead of answering on their own. Also, the summarizing questions are individualized, so students cannot find an answer that is not their own. I regularly do online searches to ensure my answers do not end up online and take action if they do.

Cosmos Episode 4 Video Synopsis from Wikipedia:

Tyson begins the episode by explaining the nature of the speed of light and how much of what is seen of the observable universe is from light emanated from billions of years in the past. Tyson further explains how modern astronomy has used such analyses via deep time to identify the Big Bang event and the age of the universe.

Tyson proceeds to describe how the work of Isaac Newton, William Herschel, Michael Faraday, and James Clerk Maxwell contributed to understanding the nature of electromagnetic waves and gravitational force, and how this work led towards Albert Einstein's Theory of Relativity, that the speed of light is a fundamental constant of the universe and gravity can be seen as distortion of the fabric of space-time. Tyson describes the concept of dark stars as postulated by John Michell which are not visible but detectable by tracking other stars trapped within their gravity wells, an idea Herschel used to discover binary stars.

Tyson then describes the nature of black holes, their enormous gravitational forces that can even capture light, and their discovery via X-ray sources such as Cygnus X-1. Tyson uses the Ship of Imagination to provide a postulate of the warping of spacetime and time dilation as one enters the event horizon of the black hole, and the possibility that these may lead to other points within our universe or others, or even time travel. Tyson ends on noting that Herschel's son, John would be inspired by his father to continue to document the known stars as well as contributions towards photography that play on the same nature of deep time used by astronomers.

Animated sequences in this episode feature caricatures of William and John Herschel; Patrick Stewart provided the voice for William in these segments.
